Gratuitous factors threadThere are enough post-primes-here threads around the forum; why not have a straight factor-reporting thread?
Fibonacci(1057) splits as [code] 13 (from fib(7)) 2113 5737 (from fib(151)) 2811666624525811646469915877 (from fib(151)) 138350496838007817946168356320856056973722649268262385229683944504459890710941261550861377381 579400004209795506836855348508059769276857157977636895767235484362787481855282292783501899717 [/code] The final factorisation of a C185 as a product of two P93s was a fairly easy SNFS job which happened to have a pretty result: I reckoned that Fibonacci numbers should have the same sorts of identities as Cunningham numbers do, and so used pari's linear-dependency code to find relations between fib(1057)/fib(151) and the terms a^6, a^5b, a^4b^2, a^3b^3, a^2b^4, ab^5, b^6 for a and b Fibonacci numbers. It turns out that a nice polynomial is [code] X6 13 X5 -22 X4 20 X3 -15 X2 20 X1 -22 X0 13 Y0 9969216677189303386214405760200 = fibonacci(150) Y1 -26099748102093884802012313146549 = fibonacci(152) [/code] The polynomial is symmetrical, and indeed the various constructions for taking out factors of 13 and 21 giving sextics also work. Sadly, the problem that removing a factor five gives a degree-four polynomial is also there, and whilst you can get degree-six polynomials with smaller-than-random coefficients corresponding to a removed factor five, they're not enough smaller than random to be better than ignoring the factor five. Sieving (small primes <20M both sides, 29-bit large primes, algebraic Q from 20M to 26M) with a version of ggnfs-lasieve14e with AMD64 inmost loops, provided by Joppe_Bos, took 350 CPU-hours on a quad-core between the evening of 20 Feb and the evening of 24 Feb; linear algebra took twelve hours elapsed on four cores with msieve-1.29 after 24 hours elapsed running msieve-1.33 failed twice.

I've never tried any of these programs, except ecm. When you talk about failures, is it stuff that you have to tweak, or does the program have some sort of method for cycling through various combinations? I have no idea what kind of combinations, but it seems like there are different variations that can be tried, or maybe I'm just reading non math intensive comments in the factoring threads wrong.
(It's fun to scan the math threads for stuff that makes sense. Not that the rest is nonsensical, but if you don't have the knowledge it's mostly gobble-de-gook. :) ) |

[quote=fivemack;127119]The final factorisation of a C185 as a product of two P93s was a fairly easy SNFS job which happened to have a pretty result: I reckoned that Fibonacci numbers should have the same sorts of identities as Cunningham numbers do, and so used pari's linear-dependency code to find relations between fib(1057)/fib(151) and the terms a^6, a^5b, a^4b^2, a^3b^3, a^2b^4, ab^5, b^6 for a and b Fibonacci numbers.[/quote]
Sorry to post off-topic, but what is meant by something like "C185" or "P93"? Just as I'm asking this question I thought of what it might be, just based on the letters...C185 means a composite, 185-digit number, and P93 means a prime, 93 digit number. Is that shot in the dark at all right? Or something to do with Cunningham numbers? [b]Yes, that's correct[/b] -- fivemack |

<snip> reaction to running out of disc quota on the server wasn't to lose writes silently so one file had 200MB of zeroes in the middle where relations should have been.[/QUOTE] Welcome to the club!!!!!:lol: I've had entire collections of sievers shut down because some retard decided to dump multi-gigabytes of data onto a shared file system and thereby run it out of space. It leaves corrupted records at the ends of my output files. This has happened at least a half-dozen times. Naturally the users who do this never bother to check if there is enough space before they dump their data...... |

I think this is a variant of formula (47) at [url]http://mathworld.wolfram.com/FibonacciNumber.html[/url] for k=7 and n=151. This formula can be used directly to get a polynomial representation of degree k-1: [tex]F_{kn}/F_n = \sum_{j=1}^k {k\choose j} F_j x^{j-1} y^{k-j}[/tex] where [tex]x=F_n[/tex] and [tex]y=F_{n-1}[/tex]. |

[quote=fivemack;127119]There are enough post-primes-here threads around the forum; why not have a straight factor-reporting thread?
[/quote] I like this idea. I respect what the prime finding people are doing, but for whatever reason I like factoring instead. So I'll post the biggest factorizations I've done by various methods, and post updates as I break my own records. I think that is the spirit of this thread, no? Most of these efforts come from the odd perfect number search ([URL]http://www.oddperfect.org/[/URL]), which I've been involved with for a year or so now. To start: 421^59-1 (C144, difficulty 157.46) by SNFS factors as 8769524964618840768473228417817739675245059818515901 * 35824627104830457305942978653803062873922140670229459114188957954764951096171385903989548363 using the polynomial [SIZE=2]c5: 1[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]c0: -421[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]Y1: -1[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]Y0: 31001674351559225686692396607441[/SIZE] 6M relations from ggnfs 13e siever on one core of a Athlon64 2.2GHz for a few days followed by msieve postprocessing to produce a 395010 x 395258 matrix with weight 25331768 - ben. |

By P-1, the C135 cofactor of 64271^37-1 factors as
274817637397314759415229527351079 * P102 using a version of P-1 which I wrote, with a stage one bound of 1e8 and stage two bound of 2e9. |

By QS, 11^174+10^174 (C103) factors as

A couple of SNFS resultsI've just completed a few factorizations from the homogeneous cunningham reservation list.
